When we first booked our venue (a Weddings of Distinction property), we were a little nervous that they had a caterer we HAD to use — what if we weren’t impressed with the food? Well, we should never have worried! We were floored by the variety, quality, and quantity (!!) of food that our guests were treated to on our big day.

We got our first taste of how lucky we were at our tasting, where we sampled a little bit of everything and were able to make little adjustments, like mixing and matching the various meats and sauces, to customize the menu to our exact taste.

As for the big day, it exceeded all of our already high expectations. Starting with cocktail hour, the spread was truly eye-popping — there was something for everyone, and each hors d’oeuvre and station-based dish was as beautiful as it was tasty. The Chinese food station, the mini tacos, and the grilled cheese/tomato bisque shooters were the biggest hits — we had guests cornering the staff to chase down seconds of their favorite dishes.

The entrees, though, are what really differentiates Merri-Makers from the competition — they were by far the best wedding mains we’ve ever had. People loved the fish, the filet mignon, and even the chicken and the vegetable napoleon. They accommodated every dietary restriction, even the more unusual ones. Dessert was the cherry on top. It was such a treat to have passed sweets in addition to our wedding cake. A little something for everyone!

Really, I’m so impressed. So much better than the other wedding food we’ve enjoyed. We never thought people would walk away from our special day still raving about the food, but here we are!!!
